	[Finance Docket No. 34040]


	Riverview Trenton Railroad Company--Acquisition and Operation--In
	Wayne County, MI

	AGENCY: Surface Transportation Board.

	ACTION: Notice of extended comment period.

	
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

	SUMMARY: The Riverview Trenton Railroad Company (RTRR) has
petitioned
	the Surface Transportation Board (Board) for authority to acquire
and
	operate a rail line approximately 1.5 miles in length in Wayne
County,
	Michigan, to serve a proposed intermodal facility. The Board's
Section
	of Environmental Analysis (SEA) served an environmental assessment
(EA)
	for public review and comment on this project on October 15, 2001.
	Comments were originally due by November 14, 2001. Due to recent
events
	involving a principal postal facility in Washington, DC, timely
receipt
	of materials mailed to the Board has been disrupted. The Board has
	therefore decided to extend the comment period until November 26,
2001.
	SEA requests that individuals filing comments, as well as
individuals
	who have previously filed comments regarding this EA, take the
	following additional steps to ensure receipt of their correspondence
	during the comment period:
	     1. Telephone or e-mail the environmental contact prior to the
close
	of the comment period and inform them that you have mailed a
comment.
	     2. If the comment has not been received, the environmental
contact
	will discuss alternative modes of delivery.
	     3. Retain a copy of your comment for your records should
	alternative modes of delivery be necessary.

	[[Page 57774]]

	     SEA is committed to carrying out its duties to the public and
	regrets any inconvenience these new procedures may cause.

	DATES: Comment period extended to November 26, 2001.

	ADDRESSES: Comments (an original and 10 copies) regarding this EA
	should be submitted in writing to: Section of Environmental
Analysis,
	Surface Transportation Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC
20423,
	to the attention of Kenneth Blodgett.
